Sines

Davide Salvado

DAVIDE SALVADO (Galicia - Spain)

Sines - Largo Poeta Bocage

'Amarelo' (Yellow) is the name (and vibe) of the new show by Davide Salvado. Yellow, or gold, lemon, the colour of warning (in the animal kingdom), but also, as Manolo Cortés writes in the texts accompanying this project, "a colour that tinges revisited places, that have evolved and transformed”. Davide is one of the most charismatic voices of new Galician music. Like many of his fellow countrymen and artists, he learned directly from the music that still survives in village communities. He has sung and played percussion with Ugia Pedreira, Budiño, Kepa Junkera. Davide interprets the traditional Galician songbook but doesn’t stop there. He travels the world in song. He takes the roots and moulds them according to his sensibility. He’ll come to Sines as part of a trio.


Sans (c) Jim Sutherland

SANS (UK / Finland / Armenia)

Sines - Centro de Artes

Music is the most universal language of the emotions, facilitating communication between those who listen, but also those who make it. Sans brings together two multi-instrumentalists from the United Kingdom (Andrew Cronshaw and Ian Blake), two vocalists and players of the Finnish kantele (Sanna Kurki-Suonio and her daughter Erika Hammarberg) and a master of the duduk, a traditional Armenian wind instrument (Tigran Aleksanyan). Together, each musician seeks within what connects them to the others. The ghosts of British folk tunes come together with Armenian laments, which in turn give shape to Karelian ancestral songs. The final result laid down on the album ‘Kulku’, is sheer magic. Each place together as one, and on another purely spiritual plane.


Tete e Sara Alhinho

TÉTÉ & SARA ALHINHO (Cape Verde)

Sines - Centro de Artes

Mother and daughter, two paths, two identities, and one converging destiny. Tété Alhinho is already a reference in the history of Cape Verdean music. Who can forget that voice of such clarity and timbre, which took the world by storm in the 1990s, as part of the group Simentera. Today, as well as the voice, she is also one of the rare female songwriters of classic morna. ‘Mornas ao piano’ (2017), her most recent album, bears witness to her genius. Sara Alhinho, Best New Artist in the Cabo Verde Music Awards 2014, is following in the footsteps of Teté. Also a singer-songwriter, she brings a touch of the Mexico of her father to the music she makes. ‘Ton di petu’, the album she released in 2018, reveals a modern, polished Cape Verde. Together on stage in Sines, we get to see what they have in common and what makes them so unique.


The Venopian Solitude

THE VENOPIAN SOLITUDE (Malaysia)

Sines - Largo Poeta Bocage

It’s rare the music of Malaysia ever reaches our ears, and even less so fresh Malayan talent. So this debut is something to celebrate. Heralding from Selangor, a state in the southwest of the country, it saw the light of day in 2009 in the guise of an artist going under the pseudonym of Suiko Takahara. In the beginning, this was a mystery one-woman-show just doing the rounds on Bandcamp and Youtube. Then in 2013, it welcomed new members. Few are the bands in which the singer wears a hijab, which also sets them apart. What matters most, namely the music, is difficult to pin down: it seems to be pop, but after that anything is possible. The first album (translated as ‘Tales of a Lunatic Damsel’) was launched in 2014. Its successor comes out this year.
